Uber Driver makes £60,000 but has only driven a few miles!

Joseph Ziyaee, from LA signed up as an Uber driver but has hardly driven anyone (because he broke his foot), whilst he couldn’t drive he saw that Uber offered a bounty for each new driver another driver recommends to the service. In the first month Joseph made £13,763 but only actual made 1 trip!

It makes sense that he’s made nearly £60,000 as he has been busy recommended and helping new drivers to the system, with friends, friends of friends, word of mouth, and social media helping him get his total sign-ups to over 200 people!

He talks everything through with the new drivers, helps them with background checks etc and seems to be a good resource but we’re not sure if Uber was quite expecting his referral credit to climb so high!

Important things to remember with everything we post:

  • If you earn over your personal allowance (currently £12,500 a year) HMRC need to get their % cut (even if the money is in cash or from another country)
  • If you’re working for yourself / earning an income on the side you need to let HMRC know – There are numerous benefits but also some drawbacks
  • You need to always ensure whatever you’re doing is legal and not hurting anyone else – be careful and always think twice
  • Some income streams may require you to have DBS check, licence, insurance or qualifications before you can start to profit from it, do your research.
  • Be careful that any additional income doesn’t compromise your studies or main income/job
  • If you work for a company check your contract, if you don’t inform them you’re working on other side projects outside of work they may have grounds to ownership on this work
